Noir has been in the DNA of Riverdale since the beginning, so it should be no surprise that the noir-tastic “The Red Dahlia” is a blast—an episode that doubles down on whodunnits, double-crosses, and dames to kill for. This week, Dial M For Maple pieces the clues together to figure out where the show will go from here, and wonders whether or not Archie should’ve just gone through with his plan. Plus, hosts Marah and Cameron make a case for Maximum Security Prison Hal, and demand to see more of Kelly Ripa’s Ms. Mulwray in the future.
